Our last edition of Kidstar Academy in 2016 was a big success!
Kidstar academy classes are not only a way for students to improve the normal school syllabus, but also a very important part of their formation in life skills. During the Kidstar academy days the students can learn about enhancing their self-esteem, how to identify their career choices, talent development, entrepreneurship skills and other relevant topics like how to avoid drugs and other harmful substances. All these subjects are imparted by specialists on call.
It takes place three times a year, during the holiday breaks in.April, August and from November to late December.
Normally, the number of participants per session is around 100 but, during the November – December holiday, the number rose to 157 students. This successful figure is related to the increase of guest speakers from Kisii University, the Probation Office in Ugunja and the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University.
In this last session, the teachers involved were:
Gordon Ochieng (Maths/ Business studies)
Finn Okewo (Guidance and counseling/ Biology and Chemistry)
Grace Ooko,(English /Literature)
Veronica Ojwang (Kiswahili /History)
Sylvester Alomba (Chemistry /Physics)
Paul Oluoch (Biology /Chemistry).
We would like to thank teachers and students for their efforts during 2016 and encourage them to continue working together for 2017.
